York New Musical Festival

The York New Musical Festival Association started from a collaboration between the then Chairman of York Musical Theatre Company – Jim Welsman and one of the Company’s members – Rob Winlow.

Jim as chairman had received numerous requests from composers around the UK to premiere their work but the Company felt unable to take the financial risk that this would entail.

The Association is currently inviting expressions of interest from composers and production companies who would like to perform unpublished or work-in-progress shows or simply to attend. The company’s web site at www.ynmf.co.uk contains further information and booking details.
